After two years on the run, suspected child molester Charles Mozdir was killed today in a shootout with law enforcement in New York City. A police detective and two U.S. Marshals were wounded. Officers cornered Mozdir after he was featured on an episode of CNN's "The Hunt with John Walsh." Anderson spoke with John Walsh who called this a tough ending, but a good ending for the family who pressed charges.
